Brief History

The 60th Infantry regiment was formed at Charleston, Tennessee, in November, 1863. Ten companies from the 1st and 3rd Battalions, Hilliard's Alabama Legion made up the unit. Its members were from the counties of Coosa, Montgomery, Chambers, Lowndes, Butler, Pike, and Henry. It surrendered with 14 officers and 170 men.[1]

Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.

The Civil War Soldiers and Sailors database lists 1,329 men on its roster for this unit.  Roster.
